Unforgettable Experience!

Amazing! Our kids are 25, 11 and 4 and it’s impossible to find an activity that appeals to everyone. Captain Nick somehow managed! We saw a pod of 250 - 300 dolphins. It was stunning and an experience that our family will never forgot. Skip the large tour boat and book with Captain Nick instead. You will not be disappointed!

Captain Nick was terrific! We booked this excursion for six people. From the get go , Captain Nick was polite, courteous and made us feel at home. His boat is brand new, beautiful and has lots of power. The seats absorbed all of the shock from the water. He was knowledgeable about the water and the location of the dolphins. He winded up finding a large school of 500 plus dolphins and is was a blast! I highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to have an upscale, experience.

Coolest Experience Ever!

Wow, all I can say is wow! Not really, ill say more. This was one of the most memorable trips we have ever been on! Captain Nick was awesome, very attentive and knowledgeable. His love for the animals and nature was infectious. I didn't expect to see any whales considering we went in June. I was good with just dolphins! Captain Nick went above and beyond to make sure we saw something and had a great time. Lucky we saw a Blue Whale which absolutely took our breathes away! The kids were so amazed and it was a wonderful experience to share with our family. We will definitely come back again and see what else we may see out there! Thanks Captain Nick!

Nick was amazing ! He was down to earth and helpful. We saw whales for sure. But the spectacle was 500-1000 dolphins frolicking and swimming with the boat. The kids touched dolphins and had a life changing experience ! Thank you again Nick we will be back.

Fantastic experience

We had a fantastic experience with Captain Dan. We chose to go with a smaller group which turned out to the right decision given the smaller boat is faster and can go further into the sea. Saw a lot of dolphins and they were literally surrounding us which was amazing to see.
